So…I’d ordered some bird seed online from Buchheit yesterday, and after work, I went to pick it up. It started raining right at four, so I wasn’t happy about that, but the birds would kick my arse if I let them go without sunflower, mixed seed, and their peanut suet (plus, I needed a narrow […]

It’s spring on the Parview flower farm, so of course I’m behind on my posting, since I’ve been working so hard in the fields (read: parking my fat arse in my rocker on the patio). I’m posting three pictures of the yellow honeysuckle out front because it’s just fucking pretty and it’s my blog, so […]

Well, my part is done, assuming that Stinky and Mini Stinky don’t think it’s a good spot to dig for worms, and that the neighbourhood cats don’t bypass my efforts to deter them from using it as a litter box. Now, it’s up to the sun, the rain, the soil, and the seeds. Doesn’t look […]

Not finished because I had to mow the stupid lawn, but I got the edging installed (I’ll give it three stars) and hauled over the six bags of topsoil that I just bought, plus a bag I found that has been over by the garage for probably two years. My upper back and shoulders know […]

So I’ve been lazy as far as actually posting anything, but progress has been made on the Memorial Arch Project. Not a lot of progress because it’s been cold and shitty so much of the time, but progress! April 6th, the weather was fit to get the arch and panels in place. The lawn needed […]

I finally decided it was warm enough to unpack the garden arch I got for P’s memorial floral installation. I was less than pleased to see that there was a little rust, and that it was under the powder coat, so it hadn’t happened in storage or shipping. It wasn’t, however, enough to warrant sending […]

Just a few…I was taking photos so send to R because they’d got 6″ of snow, and I figured she could use some spring. Forsythia. This is the little string I got for free with some plant order or another. I stuck it in the ground with no soil amendment, and then the landscapers ran […]

I’ve been working from home due to the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order (though we’re exempted by virtue of providing parts for essential industries, but no, thanks!) and there’s a lot going on in spring, so I’m a bit behind, but…bees! I came to get my laptop on the 20th so I could get my remote connection […]

I’m too tired and can’t be arsed to re-type everything, so I’ll copypasta from the email I sent to R. So…you might remember last year that P had bought me a couple of little mason bee houses. Mason bees are (one of) the cute, fuzzy, gentle little solitary bees that build nests inside tubes. Masons […]

Not many yet, but after shitty winter, I’ll pretty much take anything. I noticed when the crocus leaves started to emerge (because I was looking for them), but didn’t notice any buds…and when I got home from work today, I noticed flowers. The first mini daffodil! Those things are just so cute, and they open […]
